The following paper discusses the potential benefits of an international form of governance for each of the member nations. This paper assesses whether the problems associated with loss of national power affect economic and political stability and strength.

From the paper:

"For most Americans, the idea of a supranational legislative body such as the European Parliament is alien -- even undemocratic. The idea of being governed by Canadians along with Mexicans seems, well, un-American. There are few more important symbols of our national identity than our Congress and our money -- and to cede such a large portion of national identity as would be required to have an international legislature and currency would seem to strike at the country's most important strengths."
